    Covid-19
    There has been no policy notice from Workaway so we are writing to any prospective visitors on our own. We are fully vaccinated and would appreciate the same from anyone applying to live with us. Please use your common sense when pursuing a place to stay. If you are sick, don't come!

    My husband and I moved from the big city of Toronto six summers ago to pursue a quieter, moderately self-sustaining lifestyle. On our 12 acres we have meadow and hardwood forest. As the soil is sandy, from thousands of years of being part of a large sea, we are working hard to augment the soil for farming. Using methods such as Hugel kultur and digging in composted material; building raised beds and planting native species, we endeavour to bring the land to a state of growing ability.

    In addition to this, we have a small bee yard, consisting of three hives. We have tried to plant flower species that are both native and sustaining for bee forage. Any honey we harvest has so far been for our own use.
    Some of our large projects include laying a walking trail through the hardwoods, clearing out and repairing a barn on site, building a wood burning pizza and bread oven and establishing a mixed fruit orchard with trees and bushes native and hardy to our area.

    Our fruit trees and vegetables are chemical free with hand picking of pests being our primary method of damage control. As you can imagine, this is very labour-intensive during the growing season. Another task that takes considerable time is the removal of invasive plant species on our property. By doing this we are able to maintain the natural habitats required for birds, frogs and snakes.

    We live in beautiful Northumberland County, Ontario, east of Toronto and west of Kingston.

    Arbeit

    Here we are in the middle of summer 2021! Chores now consist of weeding mostly. We are currently building a greenhouse for which we need assistance. End August and early September will be very busy with honey collection and bottling. We also have some orchard maintenance. Much of our work will be dirty but not overly taxing. Any and all are welcome to help!
